Andre Romelle Young AKA Dr. Dre, is a record producer, rapper and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. Dre was previously the co-owner of, and an artist on, Death Row Records.
He has produced albums for your favorite rappers including: Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, 50 Cent, The Game and more recently Kendrick Lamar. He is credited as a key figure in the popularization of West Coast G-funk, a style of rap music characterized as synthesizer-based with slow, heavy beats.
Hopefully in 2014 we can finally get this long talked about Detox album, but I won’t hold my breath on that one!
Happy Burfday Dr. Dre!
